Loch Leven Fisheries Bio

Loch Leven has been renowned – both nationally and internationally – as a brown trout fishery for well over a hundred years. It is famous for its unique strain of brown trout, Salmo Levensis, which has been used to stock rivers, lakes and lochs not only in this country, but also all over the world. After trials of stocking both brown trout and rainbow trout during the latter half of the 20th century, Loch Leven has reverted to once more being a natural brown trout fishery.

The Loch is some 3,600 acres of predominantly shallow water with an average depth of about 12 feet, making it an ideal water for fishing. The Loch Leven trout is fast growing with a pink flesh, similar to a sea trout, and is known for its fighting qualities. The condition of trout being caught in recent years has been as good as anyone can remember and a significant number last season weighed in at between 5 – 7 lbs which is historically well above average for Loch Leven. Much of this is a result of the significant improvements in water quality that has been seen over the last two decades.

We don’t permit bank fishing here at Loch Leven so all fishing is “fly only” and must be from one of the fishery’s boats. Boats are available for day and evening sessions as well as early morning sessions on Saturdays during the summer months.

Fishing on the Loch is under the management of Loch Leven Fisheries, which has a well-maintained fleet of modern, fibre glass design boats with outboard motors. These operate from a main pier at the Southwest corner of the Loch. There is also a big shed for weighing in the catches, ample parking and toilet facilities.
